Bishop Graham’s Visitation

It was a great pleasure to have Bishop Graham with us last week, taking our service and commissioning Brian as a member of the home communion team. Thank you to everyone behind the scenes who helped to make last Sunday special and to everyone for making Bishop Graham feel so welcome. He enjoyed being with us and is encouraged by what he has heard and seen. Photos, which celebrate this lovely occasion, will be put up in Horsford church.
